of His Excellency John A. Andrew, Governor and Commander-in-chief. William Schouler, Adjutant-General. The purpose of firing these salutes was to revive old patriotic memories. The 8th of January had been held a holiday by the Democratic party since the presidency of General Jackson; though of late years it had been, in a great measure, passed over without special regard. The association of the first battle-fields of the Revolution with the last and most brilliant action of the war of 1812 and the patriotic movement of Major Anderson in Charleston Harbor, would, it was believed, revive pleasant recollections of the past, and serve to unite the North in support of the Constitution and the Union. As required by law, the Adjutant-General had made his annual report in December. It was addressed to Governor Banks, and is dated Dec. 31, 1860. On pages 37 and 38 he says,— Events have transpired in some of the Southern States and at Washington, which have awakened the attent
enants,—all of Worcester. This company was originally organized in 1803, by Hon. Levi Lincoln, and served in the war of 1812, under command of his brother, Captain John W. Lincoln. Company H, Watson Light Guard, Lowell. Officers: John F. Noyesblic-spirited, full of life, and knew their duty. Many of the companies had honorable records, running back to the war of 1812, of which they were proud. They had rivalries and jealousies. They demanded their right position in the regimental line,e Constitution was the school-ship of the academy. It was the most famous ship in our naval annals; having, in the war of 1812, won the choicest laurels. It was supposed that she would be seized by the rebels: to save her from such a disgrace was tgton by way of Annapolis, and of having saved from possible loss the frigate Constitution, the Old Ironsides of the war of 1812. The Third Battalion of Rifles, by transport from New York, reached Annapolis April 24, and quartered in the Naval Acad
opened with prayer; and the oldest and most venerable of the inhabitants were seated on the platform. The veterans of the Revolution had passed away, and the seats which they would have filled were occupied by the surviving soldiers of the War of 1812. Addresses were made by clergymen, lawyers, and by young men, to whom the cause gave words of earnest eloquence. The Union, one and inseparable, and how Massachusetts could best serve it, were the themes which inspired them all. Resolutions werhirts be acceptable? If so, I will have them made and forwarded to you for distribution. Our country, right or wrong. April 23.—Edward Greenmon, or Greenmast, of Mendon, writes, Will you accept the service of a Dartmoor prisoner in the war of 1812, and near seven years on board of a British ship-of-war? Impressed at the age of twelve years, when the war was declared, I was most cruelly flogged and threatened to be hung, because I would not fight against my country. I am ready now to fight
man is being fought every day, and will be fought on battle-fields yet unknown. Mr. Albee, of Marlborough, spoke in favor of the resolves. Mr. Slack, of Boston, recurred to the days of the Revolution, when the deeds of the colored citizens were the subject of the highest marks of approval. Mr. Pierce, of Dorchester, advocated the passage of the resolve, and read the words of General Andrew Jackson in commendation of the bravery of the colored battalions at New Orleans, in the war of 1812. Mr. Branning, of Lee, had always been, and was now, in favor of the rights of colored men; but he did not think it was wise to pass these resolves at the present time. The vote to accept the report that the resolves ought not to pass was then taken,—yeas 78, nays 69. The following was the principal resolution:— Resolved, That our Senators in Congress be instructed, and our Representatives requested, to use their utmost efforts to secure the repeal of any and all laws which dep

Howe, in New York, to recommend to the consideration of General Ullman, who was authorized to raise a colored brigade in the South, James Miller, of Salem, as a proper person to receive a commission. He was then serving in our Fiftieth Regiment, in the Department of the Gulf. Mr. Miller, he says, is the eldest grandson of General Miller, of the war of 1812,— the hero of Lundy's Lane. On the 31st of March, he wrote to Colonel Maggi, commanding our Thirty-third Regiment,— You must not resign. As soon as our Legislature adjourns, I am intending to visit Washington. I shall then do my utmost for your advancement. I want you to secure the good favor of General Hooker, and see if he wants help. You must make yourself necessary to him, by giving him to know your capacity, devotedness, and zeal. Colonel Maggi had resigned before the le
